Default A DT iPhone app

I think it would be great if you guys (devs) made a DT iPhone app. Main reason of course is it would b cool for iPhone owning dt players such as myself to play our ap out on the road when required.

If you put out a free app that linked to a normal account people could play through an iPhone or browser which would be pretty cool. Bonus of course is that it would drive plenty of new players to the game which might make it worth your time.

If you guys go there with the Safari browser on your iphone, how do you find the gameplay experience currently?

Is it just too annoying to scroll around to click explore again or are there other issues you can help us identify?

You do have to scroll around, but I find the fact that I have to zoom in a lot to be able to hit links including explore. Small screen and small text makes it difficult when using a touch screen.

Other than that it seems to work fairly well, no compatability issues that I've noticed.

I suggest for an iPhone/Cellphone browser: ~Larger buttons for one-touch Exploring.

(Instead of having the battle events load on top of the page, and the links appear on the bottom of the page - I suggest having a large row of buttons on the top... similar to tabs for Exploring, Returning to Town, Etc.

And then have the battle results load on the bottom.

For those who have slow wifi, this means faster game play and easier loading time. Graphics can be minimized and everything simplified for the cellphone. I am on my iPhone at the moment, but tomorrow I will make a few mock game pages to show what I mean Cheers!)

Default Mock iPhone Application :D

Okay, couldn't help but sneak onto Photoshop today and throw this together. I apologize if its' still crude looking... but it's just a basic template of what I meant by "big buttons." I could probably make a prettier game layouts if bribed...

*shameless hint hint hint*



If I have more time later this weekend, I'll work on one for the other locations

What pretty hands you have Q (at least your nails are clean)

Ah don't know about iPhones and other fancy gadgets, but that looks simple but functional (and better yet, appears to be easy-to-use, even for those with troll-thumbs)

Looks good! Got any ideas on how to display things like combat, or left-bar character stats?
